Around Iceland

Sailaway and Reykjavik

sunny 60 °F

After our final port call, we went topside to witness the Windstar Signature sailaway party. It's a ceremony created for their sailing ships, that they implemented on their motor ships. The next morning we headed out on a city tour of Reykjavik to kill some time before our late afternoon flight. We got a great view of the city from the Pearl observation tower, visited the President's residence, had lunch at the Viking museum which housed an exact replica of a Viking sailing ship the would have sailed to North America. This one actually did!. After lunch we visited the "Bridge across two continents" which is a tectonic plate line between the North American Plate and the European Plate. Pretty neat.

Iceland is now one of my favorite countries in the world. Wonderfully scenic with great warm and friendly people. I doubt this will be my last visit!
